support for making sure that the sandy relief package got passed, so i expect that we'll see him continue to press congress in these coming weeks. they're going to take it back up on the 15th of this month, alex? >> okay, let's go from there to looking ahead to the debt ceiling debate, kristen. what is the his's strategy to get what it wants out of this deal without getting into another budget showdown? >> well, if you talk to white house officials they believe they have more leverage going into this battle in part because they got republicans to break on the issue of increasing taxes on wealthier americans, that's, of course, what president obama campaigned on and he got that as a part of the fiscal cliff deal. moving forward i think you can expect to see president obama hitting the road, taking his message on the road, traveling to different states and making the argument if the debt ceiling isn't increased, the economy will suffer. you hear him say he's not going to negotiate with republicans. what specifically does that mean, we'll have to wait and see because, of course, hou

this is vital to the folks who are really still suffering in the wake of hurricane sandy. you will see president obama to some extent engage in getting this passed quickly. >> he talked about his approach to reducing the deficit. let's take a look at this. >> i believe we can find more places to cut spending without short changing things like education, job training, research and technology. all of which are critical to prosperity in the 21st century economy. they must be reformed. >> what does the white house try to get what the president wants out of his next budget showdown? >> they have already put part of their strategy into motion which is basically getting republicans to compromise on the tax issue. remembering in the budget battle, they got them to increase taxes on wealthier americans and think that has set a precedent for moving forward for including new revenues and spending cuts and see president obama hitting the road. taking his message in the weekly address out to the people. i'm told we will see him start to do that soon after the inauguration. alex. >> kristen welker,

president have sort of worked together after the hurricane sandy and made appearances together. and so moved more toward the center in that way. so it may be hard for corey booker. i think people looking for him to maybe take that seat are disappointed, but i think for corey booker and his own future this is probably a move they felt safer about. >> joy, there's a bromance going on with the president and governor chris christie. won't go that far. but it's interesting because they take polls and find out he's more popular among democrats than republicans. so weigh in on his decision here in terms of mayor booker going after the seat he's going to go after and not chris christie. >> i think it's pragmatic. it's unlikely he would have been able to easily beat chris christ christieity. he's looking good now in terms of the polls. there is a downside to the booker sort of reputation. it has always been that he is a little bit of a self-promoter. he might be a little selfish politically. this plays into that. there are people in new jersey who are not as high on booker as a lot of the media
